Home of the Brave – Unionville

 

Did you know there is a town in the United States that was the only town founded by African American civil war soldiers?  It’s still there today.

The first paragraph of the article: “After the Civil War, 18 veterans of the United States Colored Troops returned to Talbot County, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, where their families had toiled for generations.  But this time, they had a chance to create something their ancestors had been denied: a village of their own, where everyone was free.,,, The founders named it Unionville – a daring statement in that time and place”
